About this pro

My main effort is to get you to the callback. Once there, the work changes and goals shift, but the initial audition is what means the most to your agent and to casting and should mean the most to you. There's no job if you can't get past round 1.

No matter the scene/script I believe that variety is the spice of life. If your scene does not have turns and shifts and opposites (ie - if your choices are not incredibly specific) then your acting will be uninteresting and you will be forgotten. 

Ultimately my goal is to get you to the place where you no longer feel as though you need a coach but have the confidence and knowledge to prep your auditions yourself. 

Let's get to work!

***Michael Schurtleff's book "Audition" is a great place to start for any actor and is a book I utilize for every audition I do.

Meeting new people and feeling as though I am working in service to others are two of my greatest joys. Coaching conjoins both, plus I get to talk about the things I love: human emotion, high stakes, risk taking, bold and uninhibited actions, game playing, and humor. Acting is a beautiful marriage of living moment to moment paired with calculated and intentional choices. This explains exactly the way I function.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First we determine where the student is in their career and where they would like to go. 

After setting up our goals we tackle what is right in front of us, whether that is a current audition or role they are working on, if they are going in for generals with Network television, or if they're looking to simply build their chops. 

We work on circles on concentration first, relaxing the body and the mind so that emotion can flow through it, and then introduce text. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and received my BFA in Acting from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

I've been trained in Meisner, Stanislavski, Uta Hagen, pantomime, clown, mask, among others. 

I have lived and worked in both Los Angeles and New York and understand the landscape of each city as it pertains the entertainment industry. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I primarily offer packages to students that consist of a month or more of classes, and on special cases I do one-off classes. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.
